About What, Like It's Hard?

"What, Like It's Hard?" is a podcast that celebrates and explores the academic study of popular music. The platform is devoted to creating a community of people who study, or just really enjoy, popular music. 

Conferences are pricey, especially for graduate students, so this digital network is designed to create a free space where popular music topics can be celebrated and explored.  

With your support "What, Like It's Hard?" can continue to produce content and grow as a community! 25% of every subscription will be donated to Student Minds UK. Bringing awareness to and challenging the stigma of mental health is one of the core values of this platform.

The other 75% of the money that you put in to 'What, Like it's Hard?' keeps the podcast running by paying the maintenance bills, allows more time to be spent on running the podcast, and allows for the future of the podcast to expand into live conferences and, eventually, funds for students to attend conferences with their music-based research.
